Maersk Line, the world’s largest container shipping company, announced that it would waive container detention charges on all its shipments into India until April 7. It comes after three weeks of nationwide lockout by the government to monitor Coronavirus spread. The move has disrupted trade.
The announcement follows an order released on Saturday by the Director-General of Shipping, urging shipping lines not to impose container detention charges on import shipments until April 7 “for the smooth functioning of the supply chain trade and maintenance in the region.”
